Can't Record 1080p 60FPS
« on: September 12, 2015, 07:23:40 pm »
Hey folks,

Hate for my first post on the forum to be one asking for help, but Heeelllpppp!

I've recently started running a small YouTube channel, and up until recently I've only been recording at 1080p at 30fps, as my GPU and HDD wasn't up to the task of doing anything else.

But I've upgraded a few things now, my CPU, GPU and even replaced my HDD with an SSD.

With all this I thought I'd be able to record 60FPS no problem at all, but it would appear I can't!

I've tried several different codecs (some of which provide extremely poor quality recording) and still can't get a write speed of more than 50FPS  :'(

My fav Codec is Lagarith but that tops out at 50FPS despite the games running well into the 100's.

So few details about my set up that might help here.

CPU - AMD 8350
GPU - GTX 980
RAM - 16GB DDR3
SSD - Samsung 840 EVO 500GB

Suggestions on how to clear this hurdle would be greatly appreciated!!  :)

Have you tried the Ut Video Codec Suite? The codec is being updated regularly while Lagarith hasn't been updated since 2011. I have had higher frame writes using Ut rather than Lagarith. Keep in mind Ut does not compress as well as Lagarith giving you larger files but you come to expect it with lossless codecs.

Hi

I would try Sohls suggestion first but just wanted to ask if the SSD is the only hard drive you have? The reason I ask is that I could record 1080p 60fps on a lower spec system than what you have but I was running my OS from a seperate SSD and games were installed on another SSD and then recording to a third.

Im not a tech guy but Im just wondering if you are "asking" one SSD to do too much. Maybe some other tech savvier could answer that.

Hope you work it out

Sorry should have stated that the SSD I'm using is purely for recording, there isn't anything else on it.
The OS and a select few programmes/games are on a separate SSD, with the rest of my games/software on a 2TB HDD.

Hmmm I've not tried that one, so I'll download it now..................Done!   :D

Will it work that is the question?

Any suggestions on what option codec option is the best for Ut? it's got like 7 of them  :-\


Thanks for the help so far both  :)

I do not know a lot about color spaces but I do know that PCs use full RGB (0-255) and RGBA is with an alpha layer. Since you mention about uploading, youtube recommends the YUV420 color space. BT.601 is used in the Standard Definition broadcast standards and BT.709 is used in the High Definition broadcast standards. I would use the YUV420 BT.709 VCM for what you seem to be doing. I am sorry I can't explain it much further, but all 7 options are regards to color.  :)

That codec seems to have done the trick, a nice stable 60fps.

Just hope the qualities good now!

Thanks dude, and that description has explained enough thanks again!  :D
